Event #2: Saturday, November 4, 2023, from 1:00 – 3:00 PM
Experiments in Improvised Dinner Party Performance Art with Marya Folinsbee
Admission is free. Everyone welcome to attend.
The second workshop of the Lost Cat! series takes place on Saturday, November 4, 2023, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM at Oxygen Art Centre. Clown, actor, playwright, and teaching artist Marya Folinsbee leads the workshop, which will guide participants in experimental participatory theatre practices.
In this workshop, participants will be guided in the use of theatre and clown techniques to create and embody an original character. Those characters will then gather for an improvised, hour-long “dinner party” where the collective maintains their fictional characters for a performance art “meal.”
Props, costumes, prompts, and wrinkles will be provided by the Host to enhance the improvisatory experience. The goal of this workshop is to create a safe container for a bizarre and committed theatrical improvisation where participants can play with creative character building, improvisation, and collective performance art.
All materials provided. No experience necessary. Interested participants are expected to take part in the full two-hour session.
Lost Cat! is generously supported by the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance.
